On tasting Blitzen, I got an instant hit of raisin and cinnamon. This is a mince pie in a glass. Further down the barrell the combination of malts came through with a warm banana aroma.
This really doesn't drink as strong as its ABV suggests so its one to be wary of. However its a pleasant winter warmer and being pale doesn't take anything away from the complexity of its malts. Sweet but not overly so, Blitzen has got to be a Christmas classic.
